The Real Game/CareerZone Partnership!
The Real Game Series product was designed by an educator to help
students understand the connection between what they learn in school and their
future success in the workplace. While training is just getting started in New
York State, this same information has already been delivered with great success
in many other states and countries. We believe that these two resources, The
Real Game Series and CareerZone not only compliments one another, but pulls
together a vast amount of information and can help your students make good
career decisions while having fun!
CareerZone is a career exploratory internet system designed by
the New York State Department of Labor. CareerZone provides additional
information for teachers and counselors on the vast array of career, labor
market information, and an interactive electronic career plan available here in
New York State. We have provided links from the Real Game Series components for
further information found through the New York State Department of Labor and the
State Education Department.
CareerZone provides a reality check with up-to-date wages and
future outlook. While a student plays The Real Game, he/she is given an
occupation and is expected to make a budget that fits his/her lifestyle.
CareerZone helps the student to identify their ideal occupation and range of
salary. The student is able to comprehend the deductions and their net income
after playing The Real Game. CareerZone brings them back to REALITY and into the
middle of labor market information. Playtime is over!
